Scope and Contents:
The prints are from three sources: (1) those from glass negatives; (2) those from cut film; and (3) those for which there are no negatives.

The Archive contains Herzfeld's glass negatives, numbered from 1 to 3850. Of most of these he had blueprints made which he had arranged in 16 binders by general categories--i.e. Prehistoric pottery, bronzes, stone; Persepolis; Sasanian monuments; Syrian monuments, Persian architecture and landscapes, etc.--irrespective of the number on the negative. These formed the nucleus for the preparation of the Photo Files. The 16 binders of blueprints have been replaced by Photo Files, Nos. 1--6. The prints in each File are arranged in the same order as the blueprints; and the number of the negative is enclosed in parentheses. Following a brief identification, is a reference to the place where the print has been published, if that is the case and such publication has been located.

In addition to the blueprint binders there were three Albums - Photo Files 25 (Sasanian buildings), 27 (Parthian and Sasanian sculptures) and 28 (Pre-Achaemenian monuments and Pasargadae)--in which Herzfeld had arranged prints in a sequence for study or publication purposes. The order in those Photo Files retains that in the Albums.

In addition to the glass negatives, there is an even larger number of cut films. On his archaeological study trips, Herzfeld was accustomed to supplement his photographs on glass plates with photographs on cut film--sometimes of the same subjects, often of other subjects. Some prints to these negative were identified on the back or could be identified from other prints; but in many instances, especially of landscapes, it has not been possible to place them, except in general categories.

Prints from the cut films have been organized, so far as feasible, in groups of related material and placed in the Photo Files of similar subject matter. The negative number appears in the Photo File. Herzfeld also collected prints from many sources for study purposes. Of those there are no negatives, So far as possible, the prints have been identified and placed in the appropriate Photo File.

The Samarra material, Photo Files 19--23, is in a special category. Files 22 and 23 were arranged in Albums labeled "Paläste und Moscheen-I and -II", respectively. The only identification was written on the backs of the prints, glued to the pages of the Albums. These notations have been transferred to the captions in the Photo Files. These two Albums apparently were arranged by Herzfeld with a view to a publication of the architecture of Samarra which was never prepared. The drawings for such a publication are in this collection.

With such a large number of prints, especially in view of the fact that some were arranged in different fashions for different purposes, it is inevitable that there should be some duplication and that related material may be found in several Photo Files. The only way a user can be sure he has not missed material concerning his particular interest is to examine the Photo File Lists where every print is recorded. Inasmuch as scholars study the same monument from different points of view, the fact that a photograph has been published in one context does not diminish its value in another context.

Note: Photo Files 35--42 consist of Oriental Institute prints of which the negatives are in Chicago. The prints may be published only with the written permission of the Oriental Institute.
- "Ernst Herzfeld Papers, Series 4: Photographic Files," which is composed of b&w glass negatives, color lantern slides, b&w photographic prints (both modern and original), b&w cyanotypes, large format b&w films, and b&w duplicate prints (both modern and original), iwas originally organized into three subseries, the glass n and covers Herzfeld's travels and surveys of the most major archaeological sites in Persia, Mesopotamia and Northern Syria, from 1923 to 1931. It also covers the field activities at Pasargadae (Spring 1928) and of the Persepolis Expedition (1931).
- The Herzfeld Papers in the Archives contains 3,890 glass negatives (FSA A.6 04.GN.0001- to FSA A.6 04.GN.5075), which includes eight sketchbooks (Skizzenbücher I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII, and VIII), covers Herzfeld's travels and surveys of the most major archaeological sites in Persia from 1923 to 1924.
The Herzfeld Papers in the Archives contains 3,890 glass negatives, numbered from 1 to 5,066, without any apparent organization. Of most of these, Herzfeld had blueprints made which he had arranged in 16 binders by general categories&#x2014i.e. Prehistoric pottery, bronzes, stone; Persepolis; Sasanian monuments; Syrian monuments, Persian architecture and landscapes, etc.&#x2014irrespective of the number on the negative.
In addition to the glass negatives and blueprints, there are a series of 16 binders made of photographic prints (Photo Files, Nos. 1-16) and three albums (Photo Files, Nos. 25, 27, and 28). As well, approximately 1,069 photographic prints, which have no negatives, arranged in Photo Files 19-23, are in a special category. In File 19, prints of illustrations in Die Ausgrabungen von Samarra, vol. 1: Der Wandschmuck der Bauten von Samarra und seine Ornamentik. In File 20, prints of illustrations in Die Ausgrabungen von Samarra, vol.2: Die Keramik von Samarra von F. Sarre, supplemented by unpublished photos of ceramics. In the same file, prints of illustrations in Die Ausgrabungen von Samarra, vol.6: Die Geschichte der Stadt Samarra. In File 21, prints of illustrations in Die Ausgrabungen von Samarra, vol.3: Die Malereien von Samarra. At the end of the file, there are unpublished photographs. Files 22 and 23 were arranged in Albums labeled "Paläste und Moscheen-I and -II", respectively. These two Albums apparently were arranged by Herzfeld with a view to a publication of the architecture of the palaces, mosques and private houses of Samarra which was never prepared. The only identification, written on the backs of the prints which were glued to the Album page, had a first number in red crayon used in the captions as the negative number. In some cases, an additional number is given in blue crayon, possibly indicating a revision of the list or an alternative negative. The encircled number on the margin gives the position in the Album.
In addition to the glass negatives and the Photo Files, there is an even larger number of cut films and a package of duplicate prints which are, for the most part, unpublished. On his archaeological study trips, Herzfeld was accustomed to supplement his photographs on glass plates with photographs on cut film&#x2014sometimes of the same subjects, often of other subjects.
Arrangement:
- Glass Negatives, numbered from 1 to 5,075, originally stored in 80 wooden boxes of approximately 50 photographs each, are housed in document boxes and stored on shelves.
- Prints are organized in sequential number following publication series, "Die Ausgrabungen von Samarra." They are arranged in photo file folders which are housed in document boxes, and stored on shelves.
Biographical / Historical:
"Ernst Emil Herzfeld (1879-1948) was an orientalist whose many talents led him to explore all phases of Near Eastern culture, from the prehistoric period to Islamic times and from linguistics and religion to art and architecture." [Margaret Cool Root, 1976: "The Herzfeld Archive of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Metropolitan Museum Journal, Vol. 11, pp. 119-124."]
Local Numbers:
FSA A.06 4
General:
Titles are provided by Xavier Courouble, FSg Archives cataloger, based on Ernst Herzfeld's publications and on Joseph Upton's Catalogue of the Herzfeld Archive.
Date/Time and Place of an Event Note:
The Papers primarly relate to Herzfeld's survey of the monuments, artifacts, and inscriptions of Western Asia between 1903 and 1947 and particularly to his excavations at Istakhr (Iran), Paikuli (Iraq), Pasargadae (Iran), Persepolis (Iran), Samarra (Iraq) and Kuh-e Khwaja (Iran), as well as various archaeological expeditions throughout Cilicia, Mesopotamia, Northern Syria, and Persia. Additional research material, probably collected by Moritz Sobernheim and Max Freiherr von Oppenheim but preserved by Ernst Herzfeld, was part of a broader project, that of Max van Berchem's "Matériaux pour un Corpus Inscriptionum Arabicarum."

Ernst Herzfeld Papers, Series 4: Photographic Files; Prehistoric Pottery, etc., Bronzes, Stone (Cyanotypes File 1)
Arrangement:
- Of most of his 3,890 glass negatives, Herzfeld had blueprints made which he arranged in 16 binders irrespective of the number on the negative. In addition to the 16 blueprint binders, he assembled 5 albums including two from the Samarra series labelled "Paläste und Moscheen-I and -II." The remainder of the photographs, from glass negatives and from cut films, sometimes identified by Herzfeld, were printed en masse for study purpose (labelled by Upton as duplicate prints) and which are, for the most part, unpublished. For his own research, Herzfeld also collected prints from many sources. Of those there are no negatives. Finally, in early 1970s, Joseph Upton reorganized the whole Herzfeld collection of photographic prints into 42 photographic files, assembling 14 additional files in excess of the 21 existing files arranged by Herzfeld himself. The eight remaining files, File 35 to File 42, are made of duplicate prints provided by the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago.

- "Ernst Herzfeld Papers; Cyanotypes File 2", which was arranged by Ernst Herzfeld, provides 225 cyanotype prints (blueprints) related to archaeological sites and rock relief inscriptions and sculptures at Bisutun site (Iran), Jinjun (Iran), Kurangun (Iran), Sarpul (Iran), Dukkan i Daud (Iran), Sahna (Iran), Sardasht (Iran), Nurabad (Iran) and the ruins of Mil-i Azhdaha tower (Iran), Kaleh-i Safid (Iran), Qasr-i Abu Nasr (Iran), Naqsh-i Rustam (Iran), Istakhr (Iran), and Pasargadae (Iran).
- Additional information from Joseph Upton's Catalogue of the Herzfeld Archive reads, "The prints are from three sources: (1) those from glass negatives; (2) those from cut film; and (3) those for which there are no negatives. The Archive contains Herzfeld's glass negatives, numbered from 1 to 3850. Of most of these he had blueprints made which he had arranged in 16 binders by general categories, irrespective of the number on the negative. These formed the nucleus for the preparation of the Photo Files. The 16 binders of blueprints have been replaced by Photo Files, Nos. 1-16. The prints in each File are arranged in the same order as the blueprints; and the number of the negative is enclosed in parentheses. Following a brief identification, is a reference to the place where the print has been published, if that is the case and such publication has been located."

Ernst Herzfeld Papers, Series 4: Photographic Files; Pre-Achaemenian, Pasargadae, Naqsh-i Rustam, Istakhr (Cyanotypes File 2)
Arrangement:
- Of most of his 3,890 glass negatives, Herzfeld had blueprints made which he arranged in 16 binders irrespective of the number on the negative. In addition to the 16 blueprint binders, he assembled 5 albums including two from the Samarra series labelled "Paläste und Moscheen-I and -II." The remainder of the photographs, from glass negatives and from cut films, sometimes identified by Herzfeld, were printed en masse for study purpose (labelled by Upton as duplicate prints) and which are, for the most part, unpublished. For his own research, Herzfeld also collected prints from many sources. Of those there are no negatives. Finally, in early 1970s, Joseph Upton reorganized the whole Herzfeld collection of photographic prints into 42 photographic files, assembling 14 additional files in excess of the 21 existing files arranged by Herzfeld himself. The eight remaining files, File 35 to File 42, are made of duplicate prints provided by the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago.

Ernst Herzfeld Papers, Series 4: Photographic Files; Pre-Achaemenian Objects (Cyanotypes File 3)
Arrangement:
- Of most of his 3,890 glass negatives, Herzfeld had blueprints made which he arranged in 16 binders irrespective of the number on the negative. In addition to the 16 blueprint binders, he assembled 5 albums including two from the Samarra series labelled "Paläste und Moscheen-I and -II." The remainder of the photographs, from glass negatives and from cut films, sometimes identified by Herzfeld, were printed en masse for study purpose (labelled by Upton as duplicate prints) and which are, for the most part, unpublished. For his own research, Herzfeld also collected prints from many sources. Of those there are no negatives. Finally, in early 1970s, Joseph Upton reorganized the whole Herzfeld collection of photographic prints into 42 photographic files, assembling 14 additional files in excess of the 21 existing files arranged by Herzfeld himself. The eight remaining files, File 35 to File 42, are made of duplicate prints provided by the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago.

These two volumes contain photos of the finds from a village excavated on the plain near the ruins of Persepolis. They should be studied in conjunction with the water-colors and ink drawings: D--05--36 and D--82--88. See also Photo File 41
- "Ernst Herzfeld Papers; Cyanotypes File 4", which was arranged by Ernst Herzfeld, provides 193 photographic prints related to a trial excavation undertook by Ernst Herzfeld in the Summer 1928 as well as a campaign of excavation at the western mound, Tall-i-Bakun A under the auspice of the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago, carried out by Alexander Langsdorff under Ernst Herzfeld's direction between March 25, 1932 and July 21, 1932.
- Additional information from Joseph Upton's Catalogue of the Herzfeld Archive reads, "The prints are from three sources: (1) those from glass negatives; (2) those from cut film; and (3) those for which there are no negatives. The Archive contains Herzfeld's glass negatives, numbered from 1 to 3850. Of most of these he had blueprints made which he had arranged in 16 binders by general categories, irrespective of the number on the negative. These formed the nucleus for the preparation of the Photo Files. The 16 binders of blueprints have been replaced by Photo Files, Nos. 1-16. The prints in each File are arranged in the same order as the blueprints; and the number of the negative is enclosed in parentheses. Following a brief identification, is a reference to the place where the print has been published, if that is the case and such publication has been located."

- "Ernst Herzfeld Papers; Cyanotypes File 5", which was arranged by Ernst Herzfeld, provides 354 photographic prints which may first relate to a visit to Persepolis in November 1905 during his expedition return from the Assur (Kalat Schergat, Iraq) excavation. They may also have been taken during the two last months of 1923 and early March 1924 when Herzfeld spent six weeks on the terrace of Persepolis, drafting a plan and providing a photographic record of the whole structure. More photographs were taken in 1928 when the architect Friedrich Krefter joined Herzfeld in Persia to complete various measured plans and drawings in Persepolis. The expedition was funded by the Notgemeinschaft der Deutschen Wissenschaft. Finally, excavations of the Achaemenid site were begun on March 1, 1931, under the auspices of the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago, until Ernst Herzfeld left Persepolis permanently in Spring 1934.
- Additional information from Joseph Upton's Catalogue of the Herzfeld Archive reads, "The prints are from three sources: (1) those from glass negatives; (2) those from cut film; and (3) those for which there are no negatives. The Archive contains Herzfeld's glass negatives, numbered from 1 to 3850. Of most of these he had blueprints made which he had arranged in 16 binders by general categories, irrespective of the number on the negative. These formed the nucleus for the preparation of the Photo Files. The 16 binders of blueprints have been replaced by Photo Files, Nos. 1-16. The prints in each File are arranged in the same order as the blueprints; and the number of the negative is enclosed in parentheses. Following a brief identification, is a reference to the place where the print has been published, if that is the case and such publication has been located."

Ernst Herzfeld Papers, Series 4: Photographic Files; Persepolis (Cyanotypes File 5)
Arrangement:
- Of most of his 3,890 glass negatives, Herzfeld had blueprints made which he arranged in 16 binders irrespective of the number on the negative. In addition to the 16 blueprint binders, he assembled 5 albums including two from the Samarra series labelled "Paläste und Moscheen-I and -II." The remainder of the photographs, from glass negatives and from cut films, sometimes identified by Herzfeld, were printed en masse for study purpose (labelled by Upton as duplicate prints) and which are, for the most part, unpublished. For his own research, Herzfeld also collected prints from many sources. Of those there are no negatives. Finally, in early 1970s, Joseph Upton reorganized the whole Herzfeld collection of photographic prints into 42 photographic files, assembling 14 additional files in excess of the 21 existing files arranged by Herzfeld himself. The eight remaining files, File 35 to File 42, are made of duplicate prints provided by the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago.

- Additional information from Joseph Upton's Catalogue of the Herzfeld Archive reads, "The prints are from three sources: (1) those from glass negatives; (2) those from cut film; and (3) those for which there are no negatives. The Archive contains Herzfeld's glass negatives, numbered from 1 to 3850. Of most of these he had blueprints made which he had arranged in 16 binders by general categories, irrespective of the number on the negative. These formed the nucleus for the preparation of the Photo Files. The 16 binders of blueprints have been replaced by Photo Files, Nos. 1-16.

Ernst Herzfeld Papers, Series 4: Photographic Files; Sassanid Architecture (Cyanotypes File 7)
Arrangement:
- Of most of his 3,890 glass negatives, Herzfeld had blueprints made which he arranged in 16 binders irrespective of the number on the negative. In addition to the 16 blueprint binders, he assembled 5 albums including two from the Samarra series labelled "Paläste und Moscheen-I and -II." The remainder of the photographs, from glass negatives and from cut films, sometimes identified by Herzfeld, were printed en masse for study purpose (labelled by Upton as duplicate prints) and which are, for the most part, unpublished. For his own research, Herzfeld also collected prints from many sources. Of those there are no negatives. Finally, in early 1970s, Joseph Upton reorganized the whole Herzfeld collection of photographic prints into 42 photographic files, assembling 14 additional files in excess of the 21 existing files arranged by Herzfeld himself. The eight remaining files, File 35 to File 42, are made of duplicate prints provided by the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago.

- "Ernst Herzfeld Papers; Cyanotypes File 8", which was arranged by Ernst Herzfeld, provides 298 photographic prints which relate to field studies of Sasanian monuments at Hatra (Iraq), Taq-i Bustan (Iran), Hamadan (Iran), Persepolis (Iran), Bisutun Site (Iran), Naqsh-i Rustam (Iran), Sarpul (Iran), Firuzabad (Iran), Naqsh-i Rajab (Iran), Bishapur (Iran), Naqsh-i Bahram (Iran), Sar Mashhad (Iran), Barm-i Dilak (Iran), Guyum (Iran); Kaleh-i Kuhna (Iran), Isfahan (Iran), Nizamabad (Iran), and Kuh-e Khwaja (Iran).
- Additional information from Joseph Upton's Catalogue of the Herzfeld Archive reads, "The prints are from three sources: (1) those from glass negatives; (2) those from cut film; and (3) those for which there are no negatives. The Archive contains Herzfeld's glass negatives, numbered from 1 to 3850. Of most of these he had blueprints made which he had arranged in 16 binders by general categories, irrespective of the number on the negative. These formed the nucleus for the preparation of the Photo Files. The 16 binders of blueprints have been replaced by Photo Files, Nos. 1-16. The prints in each File are arranged in the same order as the blueprints; and the number of the negative is enclosed in parentheses. Following a brief identification, is a reference to the place where the print has been published, if that is the case and such publication has been located."

Ernst Herzfeld Papers, Series 4: Photographic Files; Sassanid Monuments (Cyanotypes File 8)
Arrangement:
- Of most of his 3,890 glass negatives, Herzfeld had blueprints made which he arranged in 16 binders irrespective of the number on the negative. In addition to the 16 blueprint binders, he assembled 5 albums including two from the Samarra series labelled "Paläste und Moscheen-I and -II." The remainder of the photographs, from glass negatives and from cut films, sometimes identified by Herzfeld, were printed en masse for study purpose (labelled by Upton as duplicate prints) and which are, for the most part, unpublished. For his own research, Herzfeld also collected prints from many sources. Of those there are no negatives. Finally, in early 1970s, Joseph Upton reorganized the whole Herzfeld collection of photographic prints into 42 photographic files, assembling 14 additional files in excess of the 21 existing files arranged by Herzfeld himself. The eight remaining files, File 35 to File 42, are made of duplicate prints provided by the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago.

- "Ernst Herzfeld Papers; Cyanotypes File 10", which was arranged by Ernst Herzfeld, provides 324 photographic prints which relate to to Herzfeld house in Tehran (Iran), the Summer house of the German legation at Shimran (Iran), and to mountain expeditions in Kurdistan (Iran) and Khorasan (Iran), as well as field studies of various architectural buildings and archaeological remains at Damghan (Iran), Bistam (Iran), Radkan (Iran), Sabzavar (Iran), Khusrawgird (Iran), Nishapur (Iran), Tus (Iran), Sangbast (Iran), and Khargird (Iran).
- Additional information from Joseph Upton's Catalogue of the Herzfeld Archive reads, "The prints are from three sources: (1) those from glass negatives; (2) those from cut film; and (3) those for which there are no negatives. The Archive contains Herzfeld's glass negatives, numbered from 1 to 3850. Of most of these he had blueprints made which he had arranged in 16 binders by general categories, irrespective of the number on the negative. These formed the nucleus for the preparation of the Photo Files. The 16 binders of blueprints have been replaced by Photo Files, Nos. 1-16. The prints in each File are arranged in the same order as the blueprints; and the number of the negative is enclosed in parentheses. Following a brief identification, is a reference to the place where the print has been published, if that is the case and such publication has been located."

Ernst Herzfeld Papers, Series 4: Photographic Files; Persian Architecture and Landscapes (Cyanotypes File 10)
Arrangement:
- Of most of his 3,890 glass negatives, Herzfeld had blueprints made which he arranged in 16 binders irrespective of the number on the negative. In addition to the 16 blueprint binders, he assembled 5 albums including two from the Samarra series labelled "Paläste und Moscheen-I and -II." The remainder of the photographs, from glass negatives and from cut films, sometimes identified by Herzfeld, were printed en masse for study purpose (labelled by Upton as duplicate prints) and which are, for the most part, unpublished. For his own research, Herzfeld also collected prints from many sources. Of those there are no negatives. Finally, in early 1970s, Joseph Upton reorganized the whole Herzfeld collection of photographic prints into 42 photographic files, assembling 14 additional files in excess of the 21 existing files arranged by Herzfeld himself. The eight remaining files, File 35 to File 42, are made of duplicate prints provided by the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago.

- "Ernst Herzfeld Papers; Cyanotypes File 11", which was arranged by Ernst Herzfeld, provides 338 photographic prints which relate to field study of various architectural buildings and archaeological remains at Baghdad (Iraq), Kufa (Iraq), Hamadan (Iran), Sunghur (Iran), Asadabad (Iran), Alamut (Iran), Rayy (Iran), Tehran (Iran), Varamin (Iran), Qum (Iran), Qara Tepe (Iran), Isfahan (Iran), Linjan District (Iran), Pasargadae (Iran), Naqsh-i Rustam (Iran), Band-i Amir (Iran), Firuzabad (Iran), Shiraz (Iran), Island of Kharg (Iran), Na'in (Iran), Kerman (Iran), Sistan (Iran), and Zahedan (Iran).
- Additional information from Joseph Upton's Catalogue of the Herzfeld Archive reads, "The prints are from three sources: (1) those from glass negatives; (2) those from cut film; and (3) those for which there are no negatives. The Archive contains Herzfeld's glass negatives, numbered from 1 to 3850. Of most of these he had blueprints made which he had arranged in 16 binders by general categories, irrespective of the number on the negative. These formed the nucleus for the preparation of the Photo Files. The 16 binders of blueprints have been replaced by Photo Files, Nos. 1-16. The prints in each File are arranged in the same order as the blueprints; and the number of the negative is enclosed in parentheses. Following a brief identification, is a reference to the place where the print has been published, if that is the case and such publication has been located."
- "Ernst Herzfeld Papers; Cyanotypes File 11" is composed of 338 cyanotype prints (blueprints), made from the following glass plates, "FSA a.6 04.GN.1196; FSA a.6 04.GN.2707; FSA a.6 04.GN.2702; FSA a.6 04.GN.2701;

Ernst Herzfeld Papers, Series 4: Photographic Files; Persian Architecture (Cyanotypes File 11)
Arrangement:
- Of most of his 3,890 glass negatives, Herzfeld had blueprints made which he arranged in 16 binders irrespective of the number on the negative. In addition to the 16 blueprint binders, he assembled 5 albums including two from the Samarra series labelled "Paläste und Moscheen-I and -II." The remainder of the photographs, from glass negatives and from cut films, sometimes identified by Herzfeld, were printed en masse for study purpose (labelled by Upton as duplicate prints) and which are, for the most part, unpublished. For his own research, Herzfeld also collected prints from many sources. Of those there are no negatives. Finally, in early 1970s, Joseph Upton reorganized the whole Herzfeld collection of photographic prints into 42 photographic files, assembling 14 additional files in excess of the 21 existing files arranged by Herzfeld himself. The eight remaining files, File 35 to File 42, are made of duplicate prints provided by the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago.

Ernst Herzfeld Papers, Series 4: Photographic Files; "Miscellaneous, Museum of Shah" and Related Objects (Cyanotypes File 13)
Arrangement:
- Of most of his 3,890 glass negatives, Herzfeld had blueprints made which he arranged in 16 binders irrespective of the number on the negative. In addition to the 16 blueprint binders, he assembled 5 albums including two from the Samarra series labelled "Paläste und Moscheen-I and -II." The remainder of the photographs, from glass negatives and from cut films, sometimes identified by Herzfeld, were printed en masse for study purpose (labelled by Upton as duplicate prints) and which are, for the most part, unpublished. For his own research, Herzfeld also collected prints from many sources. Of those there are no negatives. Finally, in early 1970s, Joseph Upton reorganized the whole Herzfeld collection of photographic prints into 42 photographic files, assembling 14 additional files in excess of the 21 existing files arranged by Herzfeld himself. The eight remaining files, File 35 to File 42, are made of duplicate prints provided by the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago.

- "Ernst Herzfeld Papers; Cyanotypes File 15", which was arranged by Ernst Herzfeld, provides 313 photographic prints which relate to field study of various architectural buildings as well as Arabic inscriptions at Aleppo (Syria).
- Additional information from Joseph Upton's Catalogue of the Herzfeld Archive reads, "The prints are from three sources: (1) those from glass negatives; (2) those from cut film; and (3) those for which there are no negatives. The Archive contains Herzfeld's glass negatives, numbered from 1 to 3850. Of most of these he had blueprints made which he had arranged in 16 binders by general categories, irrespective of the number on the negative. These formed the nucleus for the preparation of the Photo Files. The 16 binders of blueprints have been replaced by Photo Files, Nos. 1-16. The prints in each File are arranged in the same order as the blueprints; and the number of the negative is enclosed in parentheses. Following a brief identification, is a reference to the place where the print has been published, if that is the case and such publication has been located."

Ernst Herzfeld Papers, Series 4: Photographic Files; Aleppo (Syria) (Cyanotypes File 15)
Arrangement:
- Of most of his 3,890 glass negatives, Herzfeld had blueprints made which he arranged in 16 binders irrespective of the number on the negative. In addition to the 16 blueprint binders, he assembled 5 albums including two from the Samarra series labelled "Paläste und Moscheen-I and -II." The remainder of the photographs, from glass negatives and from cut films, sometimes identified by Herzfeld, were printed en masse for study purpose (labelled by Upton as duplicate prints) and which are, for the most part, unpublished. For his own research, Herzfeld also collected prints from many sources. Of those there are no negatives. Finally, in early 1970s, Joseph Upton reorganized the whole Herzfeld collection of photographic prints into 42 photographic files, assembling 14 additional files in excess of the 21 existing files arranged by Herzfeld himself. The eight remaining files, File 35 to File 42, are made of duplicate prints provided by the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago.

- "Ernst Herzfeld Papers; Cyanotypes File 16", which was arranged by Ernst Herzfeld, provides 313 photographic prints which relate to field study of various architectural buildings as well as Arabic inscriptions at Baalbek (Lebanon), Hims (Syria) and Damascus (Syria).
- Additional information from Joseph Upton's Catalogue of the Herzfeld Archive reads, "The prints are from three sources: (1) those from glass negatives; (2) those from cut film; and (3) those for which there are no negatives. The Archive contains Herzfeld's glass negatives, numbered from 1 to 3850. Of most of these he had blueprints made which he had arranged in 16 binders by general categories, irrespective of the number on the negative. These formed the nucleus for the preparation of the Photo Files. The 16 binders of blueprints have been replaced by Photo Files, Nos. 1-16. The prints in each File are arranged in the same order as the blueprints; and the number of the negative is enclosed in parentheses. Following a brief identification, is a reference to the place where the print has been published, if that is the case and such publication has been located."
- "Ernst Herzfeld Papers; Cyanotypes File 16" is composed of 313 cyanotype prints (blueprints), made from the following glass plates, "FSA a.6 04.GN.3929; FSA a.6 04.GN.3930; FSA a.6 04.GN.3931; FSA a.6 04.GN.3832; FSA a.6 04.GN.3933; FSA a.6 04.GN.3934; FSA a.6 04.GN.3935; FSA a.6 04.GN.3936; FSA a.6 04.GN.3937; FSA a.6 04.GN.3939; FSA a.6 04.GN.3067; FSA a.6 04.GN.3726; FSA a.6 04.GN.3301; FSA a.6 04.GN.3798; FSA a.6 04.GN.3719; FSA a.6 04.GN.3718; FSA a.6 04.GN.3302; FSA a.6 04.GN.3303; FSA a.6 04.GN.3813; FSA a.6 04.GN.3072; FSA a.6 04.GN.3811; FSA a.6 04.GN.3812; FSA a.6 04.GN.3252; FSA a.6 04.GN.3262; FSA a.6 04.GN.3801; FSA a.6 04.GN.3801a; FSA a.6 04.GN.3343; FSA a.6 04.GN.3335; FSA a.6 04.GN.3802; FSA a.6 04.GN.3310; FSA a.6 04.GN.3253; FSA a.6 04.GN.3255; FSA a.6 04.GN.3254; FSA a.6 04.GN.3260; FSA a.6 04.GN.3308; FSA a.6 04.GN.3307; FSA a.6 04.GN.3797; FSA a.6 04.GN.3722; FSA a.6 04.GN.3724; FSA a.6 04.GN.3723; FSA a.6 04.GN.3815; FSA a.6 04..GN.3725; FSA a.6 04.GN.3309; FSA a.6 04.GN.3070; FSA a.6 04.GN.3073; FSA a.6 04.GN.3071; FSA a.6 04.GN.3077; FSA a.6 04.GN.3069; FSA a.6 04.GN.3796; FSA a.6 04.GN.3796a; FSA a.6 04.GN.3305; FSA a.6 04.GN.3306; FSA a.6 04.GN.3076; FSA a.6 04.GN.3058; FSA a.6 04.GN.3311; FSA a.6 04.GN.3304; FSA a.6 04.GN.3074; FSA a.6 04.GN.3075; FSA a.6 04.GN.3795; FSA a.6 04.GN.3814; FSA a.6 04.GN.3799; FSA a.6 04.GN.3800; FSA a.6 04.GN.3338; FSA a.6 04.GN.3339; FSA a.6 04.GN.3329; FSA a.6 04.GN.3333; FSA a.6 04.GN.3345; FSA a.6 04.GN.3341; FSA a.6 04.GN.3344; FSA a.6 04.GN.3435; FSA a.6 04.GN.3436; FSA a.6 04.GN.3327; FSA a.6 04.GN.3678; FSA a.6 04.GN.3671; FSA a.6 04.GN.3673; FSA a.6 04.GN.3675; FSA a.6 04.GN.3676; FSA a.6 04.GN.3677; FSA a.6 04.GN.3672; FSA a.6 04.GN.3668; FSA a.6 04.GN.3101; FSA a.6 04.GN.3102; FSA a.6 04.GN.3097; FSA a.6 04.GN.3099; FSA a.6 04.GN.3667; FSA a.6 04.GN.3670; FSA a.6 04.GN.3674; FSA a.6 04.GN.3665; FSA a.6 04.GN.3669; FSA a.6 04.GN.3119; FSA a.6 04.GN.3126; FSA a.6 04.GN.3438; FSA a.6 04.GN.3443; FSA a.6 04.GN.3125; FSA a.6 04.GN.3121; FSA a.6 04.GN.3130; FSA a.6 04.GN.3124; FSA a.6 04.GN.3447; FSA a.6 04.GN.3439; FSA a.6 04.GN.2847; FSA a.6 04.GN.3437; FSA a.6 04.GN.2849; FSA a.6 04.GN.3127; FSA a.6 04.GN.3123; FSA a.6 04.GN.3120; FSA a.6 04.GN.3442; FSA a.6 04.GN.3441; FSA a.6 04.GN.3096; FSA a.6 04.GN.3098; FSA a.6 04.GN.3100; FSA a.6 04.GN.3500; FSA a.6 04.GN.3426; FSA a.6 04.GN.3448; FSA a.6 04.GN.3449; FSA a.6 04.GN.3446; FSA a.6 04.GN.3129; FSA a.6 04.GN.3501; FSA a.6 04.GN.3502; FSA a.6 04.GN.3503; FSA a.6 04.GN.3131; FSA a.6 04.GN.3444; FSA a.6 04.GN.3440; FSA a.6 04.GN.3122; FSA a.6 04.GN.3445; FSA a.6 04.GN.3450; FSA a.6 04.GN.2825; FSA a.6 04.GN.3931; FSA a.6 04.GN.3832; FSA a.6 04.GN.2834; FSA a.6 04.GN.3830; FSA a.6 04.GN.2855; FSA a.6 04..GN.2857; FSA a.6 04.GN.2849; FSA a.6 04.GN.2850; FSA a.6 04.GN.2851; FSA a.6 04.GN.2856; FSA a.6 04.GN.2816; FSA a.6 04.GN.2854; FSA a.6 04.GN.2806; FSA a.6 04.GN.2830; FSA a.6 04.GN.3633; FSA a.6 04.GN.2807; FSA a.6 04.GN.2835; FSA a.6 04.GN.2852; FSA a.6 04.GN.2810; FSA a.6 04.GN.2828; FSA a.6 04.GN.2751; FSA a.6 04.GN.2756; FSA a.6 04.GN.2760; FSA a.6 04.GN.2755; FSA a.6 04.GN.2753; FSA a.6 04.GN.2758; FSA a.6 04.GN.2837; FSA a.6 04.GN.2836; FSA a.6 04.GN.2841; FSA a.6 04.GN.2846; FSA a.6 04.GN.2844; FSA a.6 04.GN.2838; FSA a.6 04.GN.2840; FSA a.6 04.GN.2812; FSA a.6 04.GN.2809; FSA a.6 04.GN.3640; FSA a.6 04.GN.3639; FSA a.6 04.GN.2827; FSA a.6 04.GN.3641; FSA a.6 04.GN.2811; FSA a.6 04.GN.2826; FSA a.6 04.GN.2804; FSA a.6 04.GN.2832; FSA a.6 04.GN.2833; FSA a.6 04.GN.2824; FSA a.6 04.GN.3336; FSA a.6 04.GN.2757; FSA a.6 04.GN.2813; FSA a.6 04.GN.2829; FSA a.6 04.GN.2831; FSA a.6 04.GN.2843; FSA a.6 04.GN.2845; FSA a.6 04.GN.2839; FSA a.6 04.GN.2808; FSA a.6 04.GN.2805; FSA a.6 04.GN.3128; FSA a.6 04.GN.3646; FSA a.6 04.GN.3647; FSA a.6 04.GN.3636; FSA a.6 04.GN.2769; FSA a.6 04.GN.3642; FSA a.6 04.GN.3638; FSA a.6 04.GN.3643; FSA a.6 04.GN.3826; FSA a.6 04.GN.3828; FSA a.6 04.GN.3829; FSA a.6 04.GN.3818; FSA a.6 04.GN.3821; FSA a.6 04.GN.2853; FSA a.6 04.GN.3827; FSA a.6 04.GN.3825; FSA a.6 04.GN.2848; FSA a.6 04.GN.3824; FSA a.6 04..GN.3822; FSA a.6 04.GN.3823; FSA a.6 04.GN.2759; FSA a.6 04.GN.2752; FSA a.6 04.GN.3337; FSA a.6 04.GN.2754; FSA a.6 04.GN.2815; FSA a.6 04.GN.2762; FSA a.6 04.GN.3635; FSA a.6 04.GN.3543; FSA a.6 04.GN.3820; FSA a.6 04.GN.3817; FSA a.6 04.GN.3666; FSA a.6 04.GN.3634; FSA a.6 04.GN.3637; FSA a.6 04.GN.3816; FSA a.6 04.GN.3631; FSA a.6 04.GN.3632; FSA a.6 04.GN.3340."

In addition to the 16 blueprint binders, he assembled 5 albums including two from the Samarra series labelled "Paläste und Moscheen-I and -II." The remainder of the photographs, from glass negatives and from cut films, sometimes identified by Herzfeld, were printed en masse for study purpose (labelled by Upton as duplicate prints) and which are, for the most part, unpublished. For his own research, Herzfeld also collected prints from many sources. Of those there are no negatives. Finally, in early 1970s, Joseph Upton reorganized the whole Herzfeld collection of photographic prints into 42 photographic files, assembling 14 additional files in excess of the 21 existing files arranged by Herzfeld himself. The eight remaining files, File 35 to File 42, are made of duplicate prints provided by the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago.
